Even though Crohn’s disease causes seriously incapacitating symptoms that prevent many people from working, your disability insurance company will not make it easy to receive the disability benefits you qualify for. Most disability insurance companies don’t understand Crohn’s and think it is nothing more than a bad stomach ache. We have helped many claimants where the insurance company has told the claimant that if there is desk is close to a bathroom then they should be able to work. Obviously this is a ridiculous position. Our disability insurance attorneys can help you at any stage of the process, including the application, appeal a claim denial or filing a lawsuit in state or federal court. We know what tactics the disability insurance providers will utilize, and we know how to counter them.
Common Reasons for Denial of a Crohn’s Disease Disability Claim
Due to the chronic nature of Crohn’s disease, disability carriers will often argue that since you dealt with the condition for years, it is not a disabling condition at this time. Carriers will try to argue that medication and temporary time off can control your condition. Many carriers will try to argue that the condition is a mental nervous condition and should be limited to two years of benefits only. Another unreasonable argument.
Our firm has helped disability claimants seek their benefits since 1979. We offer a free consultation so we can go over your case and give you an assessment of your best options. We are available to assist you anywhere in the USA.
